Head Or Heart Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Trust

Like the winds, blowing
Changes, fast and growing
I knew better than
I knew better than

Words that hurt the ones you lovin'
Hatred for who you're becomin'
I knew better than
I knew better than

Trust myself
Trust someone else
Trust the lies that slip from my mouth
Trust the heart I'm so quick to sell

Yes I knew better than
I knew better than to trust love again

Memories that won't stop stinging
Promises I can't believe in
I knew better than
I knew better than

To trust myself
Trust someone else
Trust the doubt in the back of my mind
Trust the champagne left behind
Yes, I knew better than
I knew better than to trust love again

And I'm so quick to lose what was never mine to keep
And I cannot stand (oh) what's broken under me
And I don't know how to forgive myself for all I've did
But I must learn trust

Like the winds, blowing
Changes, fast and growing
I knew better than
Are you better than

Burning Gold

Looking for an exit in this world of fear
I can see the pack that leads the way
Mama never left, and daddy needs me here
I wish the wind would carry a change
Looking through the window to a world of dreams
I can see my future slip away
Honey you won't get there if you don't believe
I wish the wind would carry a change

I've had enough
I'm standing up
I need, I need a change
I've had enough of chasing luck
I need, I need a change

I'm setting fire to the life that I know
We start a fire everywhere that we go
We starting fires, we starting fires
Till our lives are burning gold
Till our lives are burning gold

Looking for my ticket to a higher place
I can see my chance begin to fade
One step forward and two back again
I wish the wind would carry a change

I've had enough
I'm standing up
I need, I need a change
I've had enough of chasing luck
I need, I need a change

I'm setting fire to the life that I know
We start a fire everywhere that we go
We starting fires, we starting fires
Till our lives are burning gold
Till our lives are burning gold

Looking back I see I had the flame in me
I'm the wind that's carrying a change

I've had enough of chasing luck
I need, I need a change

I'm setting fire to the life that I know
We start a fire everywhere that we go
We starting fires, we starting fires
Till our lives are burning gold
Till our lives are burning gold

I'm setting fire to the life that I know
We start a fire everywhere that we go
We starting fires, we starting fires
Till our lives are burning gold
Till our lives are burning gold

Human

I can hold my breath
I can bite my tongue
I can stay awake for days
If that's what you want
Be your number one

I can fake a smile
I can force a laugh
I can dance and play the part
If that's what you ask
Give you all I am

I can do it
I can do it
I can do it

But I'm only human
And I bleed when I fall down
I'm only human
And I crash and I break down
Your words in my head, knives in my heart
You build me up and then I fall apart
'Cause I'm only human

I can turn it on
Be a good machine
I can hold the weight of worlds
If that's what you need
Be your everything

I can do it
I can do it
I'll get through it

But I'm only human
And I bleed when I fall down
I'm only human
And I crash and I break down
Your words in my head, knives in my heart
You build me up and then I fall apart
'Cause I'm only human

I'm only human
I'm only human
Just a little human

I can take so much
'Til I've had enough

Cause I'm only human
And I bleed when I fall down
I'm only human
And I crash and I break down
Your words in my head, knives in my heart
You build me up and then I fall apart
'Cause I'm only human

One Night

I feel the way you want me
I see that you are lonely
If you couldn't know, you'd leave with me
It's more than curiosity
And I never long for winter
To your presence made me shiver
Untethered you'd be better if you'd only come with me

One night I'll be the moon
Hanging over you
Spilling all over your body
Covering all your wounds
One night I will be the star
Follow where you are
Somewhere in the deep of my love
Filling your empty heart
One night, one night, one night
One night, one night, one night

You've come so close to tasting
Now my innocence is breaking
Like the ocean in a perfect storm
It makes me want you even more
I've never been so jealous
I've never felt so helpless
So out of breath and hungry for you

One night I'll be the moon
Hanging over you
Spilling all over your body
Covering all your wounds
One night I will be the star
Follow where you are
Somewhere in the deep of my love
Filling your empty heart
One night, one night, one night
One night, one night, one night

Hurry, the sun is waking
Darling, don't leave me waiting

One night I'll be the moon
Hanging over you
Spilling all over your body
Covering all your wounds
One night I will be the star
Follow where you are
Somewhere in the deep of my love
Filling your empty heart
One night, one night, one night
One night, one night, one night

I Don't Wanna Break

Woke up such a bad dream
I stayed, you were leaving
With my heart, you were stealing
I don't care, I'd let you take it

Showed up, like a good girl
I fell for your fable
But I'm no Cinderella
I don't care, I'd let you take it

Put us back together
You said, it's forever
But I know you're pretending
I don't care, I'd let you take it
All again...

And I just wanna love you
Don't wanna lose me
Don't wanna lose you, whoa oh
If it gets harder
Then I don't wanna break all alone
I wanna break in your

I just wanna love you
Don't wanna lose me
Don't wanna lose you, whoa oh
If it gets harder
Then I don't wanna break all alone
I wanna break in your

Whoa oh oh, whoa oh oh
(Don't wanna break in your)

And if it gets harder
Then I don't wanna break all alone
I wanna break in your arms

Sometimes, when I'm sleeping
I still, feel you breathing
You stole, all my good dreams
I don't care, I'd let you take it

Come on, listen closely
To the sound, that our love made
If you go, I would follow
I don't care, I'd let you take it,
All again... mmmm

I just wanna love you
Don't wanna lose me
Don't wanna lose you, whoa oh
If it gets harder
Then I don't wanna break all alone
I wanna break in your

I just wanna love you
Don't wanna lose me
Don't wanna lose you, whoa oh
If it gets harder
Then I don't wanna break all alone
I wanna break in your

Whoa oh oh, whoa oh oh, whoa oh

And if it gets harder
Then I don't wanna break all alone
I wanna break in your

Whoa oh oh, whoa oh oh (Don't wanna break in your)
Whoa oh oh (Don't wanna break in your arms)
Whoa oh oh (Don't wanna break in your)
Whoa oh oh (Don't wanna break in your arms)
Whoa oh oh (Don't wanna break in your arms)
Whoa oh oh (Don't wanna break in your arms)
Whoa oh oh, whoa oh

I just wanna love you
Don't wanna lose me
Don't wanna lose you, whoa oh
If it gets harder
Then I don't wanna break all alone
I wanna break in your arms

Sea Of Lovers

A certain type of wind has swept me up
But till it's found each bone
I, I'm overcome
There is an icy breath out escapes my lips
And I am lost again
A certain type of darkness is stalling me
Under a quite mask of uncertainty
I wait for light like water from the sky
And I am lost again

In the sea of lovers without ships
A lovers without sign
You're the only way out of it
A sea of lovers losing time
A lovers losing hope
Will you let me follow you
Wherever you go
Bring me home

A certain type of silence is filled my voice
A scream beneath the water make no noise
All my prayers gone quiet and never heard
And I am lost again

In the sea of lovers without ships
A lovers without sign
You're the only way out of it
A sea of lovers losing time
A lovers losing hope
Will you let me follow you
Wherever you go
Bring me home

A certain type of wind has swept me up
But till it's found each bone
I, I'm overcome
There is an icy breath out escapes my lips
And I am lost again

In the sea of lovers without ships
A lovers without sign
You're the only way out of it
A sea of lovers losing time
A lovers losing hope
You're the only way out of it
A the sea of lovers without ships
A lovers without sign
You're the only way out of it
A sea of lovers losing time
A lovers losing hope
Will you let me follow you
Wherever you go
Bring me home

The Words

All of the lights land on you
The rest of the world fades from you
And all of the love I see
Please please say you feel it too
And all of the noise I hear inside
Restless and loud, unspoken and wild
And all that you need to say
To make it all go away
It's that you feel the same way too

And I know
The scariest part is letting go
Cause love is a ghost you can't control
I promise you the truth can't hurt us now
So let the words slip out of your mouth

And all of the stairs that land me to you
And all of the hell I has you walk through
But I wouldn't trade a day for the chance to say
My love, I'm in love with you

And I know
The scariest part is letting go
Cause love is a ghost you can't control
I promise you the truth can't hurt us now
So let the words slip out of your mouth

I know that we're both afraid
We both made the same mistakes
An open heart is an open wound to you
And in the wind there's a heavy choice
Love has a quiet voice
Still you mind, now I'm yours to choose

And I know
The scariest part is letting go
Let my love be the light that guides you home

And I know
The scariest part is letting go
Cause love is a ghost you can't control
I promise you the truth can't hurt us now
So let the words slip out of your mouth

Lonely Child

Just as fast as you came
Just as fast the sun set
You push me away, you push me down
Down, down, down, where my dreams lay
And just as quick as you left
Just as quick as you left my heart undressed
And I felt down, down, down, down
You took my wish back to the well

And I remember all the words that you said
That love is just a spark that starts in your heart
And into your head

Darling calm down, calm down
You lose yourself in the clouds
Slow down, slow down
Your world's spinning around
Play your right team, hard stay, restless running wild
Just a lonely, just a lonely lonely child

Just as dark as the night
Just as dark as the night went
I lost my mind, I lost control
Down, down, down
You let me steal my love for my soul
And I remember all the words that you wrote
That love is just the sound that plays in your heart
And gets caught in your throat

Darling calm down, calm down
You lose yourself in the clouds
Slow down, slow down
Your world's spinning around, spinning around
Play your right team, hard stay, restless running wild
Just a lonely, just a lonely lonely child

And I remember all the words that you said
That love is just a spark that starts in your heart
And into your head

Darling calm down, calm down
You lose yourself in the clouds
Slow down, slow down
Your world's spinning around
Play your right team, hard stay, restless running wild
Just a lonely, just a lonely
Just a lonely, just a lonely lonely child

Cha-cha-cha!

Run

And what do I bring with swans speeding in my chest
You think I'd learn better now cause you can't get any rest
Cause I keep trying to find happiness
In everybody else
And please move that finger that's been pointing my mistakes
I want a part in the feelings you worst makes to let
Don't let me laugh you today

And you're so damn difficult
[?] so high in your hand
And I can't believe you make me work for it
No one understands
Oh why I wouldn't run as fast as I can

And I can feel everything
I can feel your emptiness
And I don't believe is the way I love this mess
Less I can't forgive all your sins
I will learn, I'll never love you again
Again

See right through my wounds
See I'm just like you
Watch me stumble, watch me tunes
How you lies
All your relies
All your relies

And you're so damn difficult
[?] so high in your hand
And I can't believe you make me work for it
No one understands
Oh why I wouldn't run as fast as I can

Butterfly

You're a pretty butterfly
You keep on passing by
You never land inside my hands
Your home is in the sky
And there's a lesson waiting to be learned
The firestarters always get the best
And the good guys never get the girl
No shooting stars cannot fix the world
And I've made the same mistakes
But I won't this time
No I won't this time

And you're a pretty butterfly
And I believed all your lies
Blinded by your sideways smile
And the kindness in your eyes
But there's a limit to your flight
I can offer you a better life
But you keep on flying from the light
And I've lost my faith in wrong and right
And I've made the same mistakes
But I won't this time
No I won't this time

I know exactly what you do
I made them sure I studied you
You won't pick me
I'm just a breeze underneath your wings
So I pray each night you change your mind
And maybe I'm worth the fight
But I am wrong every time
You only know how to fly

You only know how to fly
You only know how to fly

Shot Me In The Heart

High, we get so high
But we fall down
It's no surprise
It's here we go, fighting
There you go again

Light on your own
Let this love
Turn to stone
There we go, fighting
There you go again
Here we go again

So let me go, let me go
I don't know how we grow
Something incredible
Oh oh-oh, oh oh oh-oh
You shot me in the heart this time
I hope you know, hope you know
You let it go
Lost it all, something incredible
Oh oh-oh, oh oh oh-oh
You shot me in the heart this time

Don't call me home
You only give what you've stole
There I go, hurting
There I go again
Here we go again

So let me go, let me go
I don't know how we grow
Something incredible
Oh oh-oh, oh oh oh-oh
You shot me in the heart this time
I hope you know, hope you know
You let it go
Lost it all, something incredible
Oh oh-oh, oh oh oh-oh
You shot me in the heart this time

Only try to make you
Only try to make you mine
Only try to make you
Only try to make you mine

So let me go, let me go
I don't know how we grow
Something incredible
Oh oh-oh, oh oh oh-oh
You shot me in the heart this time
I hope you know, hope you know
You let it go
Lost it all, something incredible
Oh oh-oh, oh oh oh-oh
You shot me in the heart this time
Shot me in the heart this time
Shot me in the heart this time

I Believe

I believe if I knew where I was going I'd lose my way
I believe that the words that he told you are not your grave
I know that we are not the weight of all our memories
I believe in the things that I am afraid to say

Hold on, hold on

I believe in the lost possibilities you can see
And I believe that the darkness reminds us where light can be
I know that your heart is still beating, beating, darling
I believe that you fell so you would land next to me

'Cause I have been where you are before
And I have felt the pain of losing who you are
And I have died so many times, but I am still alive

I believe that tomorrow is stronger than yesterday
And I believe that your head is the only thing in your way
I wish that you could see your scars turn into beauty
I believe that today it's okay to be not okay

Hold on, hold on

'Cause I have been where you are before
And I have felt the pain of losing who you are
And I have died so many times, but I am still alive

This is not the end of me, this is the beginning [x4]
(Hold on)
This is not the end of me, this is the beginning
(Hold on)
This is not the end of me, this is the beginning
(Hold on (I am still alive))
This is not the end of me, this is the beginning
(Hold on (I am still alive))
This is not the end of me, this is the beginning
(Hold on (I am still alive))
This is not the end of me, this is the beginning
(Hold on (I am still alive))
This is not the end of me, this is the beginning
(Hold on (I am still alive))
This is not the end of me, this is the beginning
(Hold on (I am still alive))
This is not the end of me, this is the beginning
